June Hayward is literally nobody.

But when June just happens to witness Athena die in a freak accident, she realises now is her chance to find fame.

So what if that means stealing her friend’s work?

So what if that means creating a new, racially ambiguous identity?

Reviews of Yellowface

Waaaaay too much time spent ranting about Twitter. It was so hard not to hear the author's own voice filtering through and it really took me out of the book. RFK is a great writer but this book needed editing down.

Natasha

Hooked me.

Humza

Elle Lilian

Brilliant and timely!
